    As are mountings for ancillary equipment

    The cylinders in which the pistons operate are cast into the block, as are mountings for ancillary equipment such as a filter for the oil which lubricates the engine, and a pump for the fuel.

    I do not understand the usage of as at this sentence. What is its mean?

    Thanks for your help!

    Re: As are mountings for ancillary equipment

    You could replace "as are" with "and so are" with no change in meaning.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
